Michelin Commander II Rear Tires
I practically lost the bike down the driveway just pushing it, there was such an improvement in rolling resistance. There was also a noticeabe improvement in ride comfort. I've never noticed either of those factors with new tires. Cornering seems a little stiff, but I got so used to the down-to-the-cord ride of my old tires, it's hard to compare. The price seemed good for a high quality tire. We'll see how the claims of treadlife hold up in about 10,000 miles, which is usually when I cord the rear tire.

Fabulous so far.....
Been riding "Dark side" for a few years due to cost and longevity factors. Many of my friends have now gone to the Michelin Commander II tires and encouraged me to give 'em a try. Sure happy with my decision so far. Performance is flawless, great traction, and, if the mileage holds up, an affordable product. I need to ride this tire a little more to come to a final conclusion but I really, really like what I've seen and felt so far.

Caution, slippery when wet.
I have had this rear tire on my Harley Screamin Eagle Ultra for 10 months now and 21,000 miles. I normally get 15,000 out of a Dunlop. But this is a very slippery tire in the rain. It does well on dry roads. In the mountains it is very loud on long hard leans. So loud that at one point I was next to a cage and thought there were issues with the cage before I realized it was my back tire humming. The tire is made Thailand - Boo. It does have long mileage as boasted, and now the price is cheaper than the competitors. I probably will pay the extra money and go with another Dunlop because I ride in rain and don't trust this tire on wet roads. I wish it would hurry up and wear out. I think it still has a good 3000 miles left on it or so.

I have an 07 Electra Glide Classic I replaced both tires I can safely say I enjoy the difference in ride, better handling ,smooth ride and I still can't get over how easily my bike responses ,definitely will be getting the same tires when it is time to replace them peace.

I commute 90 miles round trip to and from work. This is hands down the best high mileage tire ever! I actually hit 20k miles on a rear tire.

First impressions Michelin Commander II
Installed a week ago, much smoother and more comfortable than original equipment tires, can't say about wet traction or tread life.
Like them so far, about to go on a 4k mile trip so that will really tell the tale!

So far I love these tires. I bought front and rear and haven't put that many miles on them yet, haven't got to ride in the rain, thats why I have it a good rating for tread life and wet traction, but the ride is un matched to the stock tires I had on my harley. Would I buy another set? Yes as of now, and revzilla is top notch on there shipping, got both tires in 2 days, very happy with both.

A promising product
I do not have enough experience with these tires to write a comprehensive review. I purchased them because they came highly recommended by family and a mechanic. I can say this after a few rides: I really like the way the tires track, the way they transition from one side to the other during radical maneuvering (done at low speed to evaluate grip and handling), and the way they soak up harsh bumps. Road adhesion seems quite good. Time will tell if tread life is as good as advertised, but I am rapidly gaining confidence in the tires.
